I had some time off in June and also I got REALLY into Lucy Knisley, my favourite was Relish - a really touching and delightful graphic novel about food and cooking, and I really enjoyed her others too. Bert bought me The Plantpower Way - a new vegan cookbook/lifestyle book by Rich Roll and Julie Piatt which was totally great and had lots of pictures of Rich running without a top on.
The Kelly Link book Get in Trouble is a short story collection. There were a few of these stories that didn't really do anything for me, but then there were a couple (especially summer people) which were so freaking awesome that I'm still thinking about them a good six weeks on. She is really interesting - read her if you can.
Magonia by Maria Dahvana Headley is a young adult alrernate worlds fantasy novel. I loved the first half so much! So much.... But it lost me slightly when it went all out fantasy. I have since developed a huge crush on the author though and am looking forward to reading more of her books.
Alice Hoffman has been letting me down recently with her novels for adults, but Nightbird (written for young adults) is back to her magical best. A total magical delight.
Everyone has been reading Sarah J Maas and I wanted to try her too but I was worried that her books might be a bit too much high fantasy for me, so I decided to try A Court of Thorns and Roses which is more of a fairytale retelling. I super enjoyed it and will be trying her others too.
I also read a pile of yoga books, uh huh. Yoga is taking over my life.x
